Moving to Switzerland

If you want to move your belongings to Switzerland, there are two ways with Transpack. Both methods are via road transport, but there is a difference in the total removal time and price. Please note that there are customs documents needed for the import of your goods into Switzerland, Transpack will inform you about all the necessary requirements.

The costs of moving to Switzerland

The difference in costs depends on your preference for direct transport or groupage transport. With direct transport, the lorry will leave for Switzerland immediately, or within a few days, and will then appear in front of your new home. With groupage transport your shipment will be transported together with other shipments, the costs are therefore lower, but your goods will also remain in the warehouse until there is sufficient volume to fill the lorry.
